AFTER USING THE VEET INFINI'SILK FOR MORE THAN A YEAR, PLEASE READ MY FINAL UPDATE HERE!

Back at the end of June I introduced you all to a new hair removal system from Veet called Infini'Silk. (You can read my first impressions HERE.)

Veet Infini'Silk


To catch my new readers up to speed, the Veet Infini'Silk is an IPL (Intense Pulse Light) hair removal device that you use in the comfort of your own home. The Infini'Silk is used for permanent body hair removal since the light pulse stops hair growth at the root. One should start to see results in as little as 4 to 5 treatments. I have just finished my 5th treatment, and wanted to share my results up to this point.

I descend from Italian heritage, so my hair grows fast, dark and thick. If I shave my legs in the morning, by late afternoon I feel stubble coming along again. By the 4th treatment my leg hair was growing in at the same rate, but it seemed to be coming in much thinner. After the 5th treatment, I am going 3 days before the stubble starts to reappear. I am also using the Infini'Silk on my underarms. However, I am not seeing as good of results as my legs. It is still growing in at the same rate, BUT it is growing in thinner. I think with a few more treatments, I'll have the same results as I am getting with my legs. I am using the device on level 5, which is the highest setting.

Pro List for Veet Infini'Silk:

• Easy to use and store.
• Lightweight. Is designed well, so it is comfortable to hold.
• It seems to be working as promised.
• Pain free.
• Reasonably priced. The Infini'Silk has a SRP of $249.99, which may seem like a lot up front, but when you factor in what you are saving on salon visits, waxing kits or razors, over time this product will pay for itself. It also comes with a 60 day money back guarantee.
•FDA approved. 

Con List for Veet Infini'Silk:

• Time consuming. It takes me about 20 minutes to treat my legs. (However, treatments are spaced 2 weeks apart for 1 through 5, then every 4 weeks after that.)
• Only works on a hair free surface, so you still have to shave before using it.
• Difficult to use on knees. The entire light strip needs to cover skin, so on bony knees you have to press hard to get the light to go off.
• Not for use on facial hair.
• Not safe for people who have dark skin tones.


• I have not personally experienced any of these side effects, but using the Infini'Silk can result in minor skin discomfort, skin redness, increased skin sensitivity, skin wounds or burns, scarring, pigment changes, excessive redness or swelling, infection, or bruising.

Here's a Vine video I made showing a quick demo of Veet Infini'Silk:

My treatments are now supposed to be planned for 4 weeks apart, so I am hoping to be hair free by Christmas. By my calculations, this is a 6 month treatment process. I will post up another update when I have completed a few more treatments, so be sure to check back on future results!

If you would like to learn more about the Veet Infini'Silk, or if you would like to purchase one of your own, they are now available on the Infini'Silk website. You can also purchase Veet Infini'Silk Light-Based IPL Hair Removal System on Amazon


What method of hair removal are you currently using? Is the Veet Infini'Silk a product that you could see yourself using for body hair removal?

  5. It would be great to be able to not have to worry about shaving. But I have sensitive skin and finding products that won't irritate are a pain. Glad that you have gotten some results though!

  7. Interesting! I've always said if I ever did anything "plastic surgery like" it would be hair removal LOL Such a pain to shave! But this looks interesting, I wouldn't be opposed to trying it! No bony knees here LOL

  8. Although I hate shaving, I'm not so sure I would want to try this. But I know that there are a lot of people who would like to use. I have super sensitive skin, and would just be afraid I wouldn't get good results. Great review - thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  18. the idea of never having to shave again sounds amazing, but I don't know if I could be so regimented lol only takes a few minutes to shave.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Looks great but not something I can use. I do not have 20 min but maybe someday I would give it a try.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Looks like a decent product. I would be kind of worried about the side effects though. Amber n

  21. The price is a bit more than I'd like but if it works it works and would be worth while.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I could totally use something like this. Perfect for the shorts weather we have down here in Florida.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I will be curious to see the results. I'm Italian too so I get what it's like. I hate it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am curious what your results will be by xmas! I have similar hair growth like you so I'd love to find this helpful with that :P

    ReplyDelete
  25. Can't wait to see how it works out in the end but it's good to see that you're having pretty good results so far.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh wow, I don't think we have this in our country yet but it seems really nice.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sounds like it works pretty well. I also hate shaving and this would be a welcome change.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I like that it has a 60 day money back guarantee. That way you can at least try it and see if you like it or not. If it doesn't work you can always send it back.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow this is interesting! I've never heard of this before but sounds like a neat tool!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've always wondered about these kind of treatments. You have managed to make me comfortable with doing it at home! I think I'm going to take a look and see what I think.. This will probably lead me to buying! Good luck on your treatments!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think this is a fabulous invention as long as it works. Sounds like so far so good for you and I love your very honest review. For me aging has been a bit of a cure for hair on my legs. I hardly have any hair on my legs anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Really interesting. And I'm super pale, so that's within the safe range.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've been using a similar product and I'm really happy with the results. I'm hoping for no more shaving by Christmas as well :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm waxing or shaving, but have been thinking about getting something like this Veet Infinisilk. Thanks for a great review!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think I'd like to try this. I hate having to shave!

  36. Can't wait to hear your updates! My hair on my legs grow sooo fast too! Every time I sneeze, oops, there grows more hair, sigh!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've heard that Veet works really well. I have to shave my legs a lot so I would love to have this instead.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I currently just shave but this looks like a dream come true! I would love to have one of these!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have a different pulse unit that I use, but love other products by Veet. Anything to keep from having to shave. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I've always wondered about these. I don't like the idea that is only works on a hair free surface, but being more hair free is great!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is my first time hearing of Veet's Infinisilk! I definitely would love to try it out myself.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've always wondered how well those things usually work. I get waxes done and have been thinking of hair removal treatment but may get this since it's less expensive and try it out for myself.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I shave 365/365, but this sure sounds like the way to go if it works for you. I can't wait to see if you continue to be impressed.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have been wondering how well those work. It sounds like there are both pros and cons. I'll be interested to see what you have to report in your followup.

    ReplyDelete
  45. 250$ might seem like a lot but you are right, some spent way then that on hair removal product and salons.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am dying to try this. I am so sick of shaving, and during the winter... don't even get me started!

    ReplyDelete

    1. You sound EXACTLY like my girlfriend. I'm so glad I don't have to shave all the time. I don't even shave my face!

      Delete
  47. I thought I would be the only one who still shaves. I have to do it regularly as my hair grows so fast. I would definitely love to try a product like this.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I've got to get this for my girlfriend. Even though it takes a little time, I'm sure she'd love only having to do it every four weeks. She HATES shaving.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Veet has certainly come a long way. Sounds like an interesting product.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Nice to see it works! Looks easy to use too!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm glad this seemed to work for you! I personally don't shave all that often since my hairs are very light. I think I lucked out there.

    ReplyDelete
  52. What an interesting product! I will suggest this to a few friends of mine who like to rid some places of hair permanently.

    ReplyDelete
  53. So cool you got to try this out! Veets seems like a good way to remove hair, as I'm using the old razor these days...boooo

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have never heard of Veet's Infinisilk! I definitely would love to try it out myself.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would love to try this out! I get so tired of shaving every other day!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have heard of this, well have seen lots of reviews, I have got to buy this. Something to show my hubby, I mentioned I wanted one.

    ReplyDelete
  57. This would be so awesome if you never had to shave again! I think the length of time would be worth it!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I can't wait to hear if this works in the long run. If it does, I would love to give it a try!

    ReplyDelete
  59. This looks like a fun product for people who shave. It seems that once again technology helps us do things better.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I've never heard of this product before. I would love to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Sounds like it is working good for you so far. Thanks for the update.

  64. I've never used veet. I'd love to try it out.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I still think I would really like to try this. I would love to get rid of the hair on my legs. It is so hard to get to the hair on the knees!

    ReplyDelete
  66. hmmm, interesting! I hate shaving!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I would consider this but I'm not sure if my skin is too dark for it.. The price does seem a little steep though.

    ReplyDelete
  68. its not working as fast as i hoped. i have used it maybe 4 times on armpits and bikini and zero improvements on the armpits. maybe because i used to wax and now since i must shave my hair seems thicker and im not use to them being like that... i may return it.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I think it may take longer to see results where hair grows faster and thicker. I am still not seeing much improvements on armpits either, but my hair there always grows fast and thick. It may take a few more treatments to notice a difference in that area. It does seem to be doing a great job on my legs still. I don't have to shave them but every 4 days, and it seems like it is coming in a lot thinner than before. Fingers crossed we can get the underarms to that point eventually!
